Beyond Good and Evil
designer and Rayman
creator Michel Ancel has promised fans that the sequel to BG&E
will be bigger, more immersive and move complex than the first game. On top of that, he's also commented that a primary inspiration for the game was the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
"It was a mix of a lot of experiences,
" Ancel told All-Gamers (via Eurogamer
). "It was a phantasm to create an adventure game, a universe too. It was the game I wanted to create for a long time.
"There were a lot of inspirations: the Miyazaki universe, my own inspirations, politics and the media; the theme of September 11 - the CNN show with army messages and the fear climate. And it was a mix from other universes.
The first Beyond Good and Evil
game told the story of the planet Hillys and an alien invasion, from the eyes of photo-journalist Jade and her uncle Pey'j. The game ended on a cliffhanger, but it wasn't until Ubidays last year
that the sequel was confirmed.
"We could have finished the game,
" said Ancel, "but we want BG&E2 to bring something to the videogame universe.
" He went on to claim that the sequel will be more complex and immersive. Unfortunately, there's still no release date or confirmed platforms for Beyond Good and Evil 2
